Trip and Stuff
Alright, enough with the suspense. I have an entire week off, and I'm still too lazy to update this thing.... sheesh. I'll be happy with once weekly, and you will be too :P.
What can I say - NO crowd whatsoever. Even on the Saturday. The wait for the lift line was barely 3 minutes at the peak. Awesome. Great scenery, and incredible trails made for two astounding days of riding. The trails at the resort are mostly natural, save for 3 or 4 (two of which are twisted and wrong, and I'll never be riding them at *this* rate of progression - oh darn... ).
Make sure you eat at Rip'N'Richards if you're passing through. The crusted salmon was literally the best meal I've had in months, aside from the slightly smaller than normal portion. Fill the rest of the hole with some locally brewed pints and it will all work out.
This update will be accompanied by a lack of photos, because I have only three pics from the entire trip. The slow old guys I rode with took most of the photos (and a few videos, where we're hamming it up for my injured friend), so I will to start bugging them for pictures. I'll update once I get them.
And.... that's that. The Peugeot roadie is in pieces right now, and that does not make for good pictures. After I get the bloody rusted stem out, I have another full day of cleaning it up before pictures.
